The Proverbial Cap is finished. And it’s lovely. The Clun Forest yarn from Field’s Edge Farm is delightful. Clun Forest was our Woolalong breed for January, and I gotta say that so far, this is my favorite of the down breeds. Chalk it up to finding the perfect source, I guess. Because, you know, there can be a great deal of variety across a breed.
The only thing is…
The hat’s not mine now. Not anymore. The Little Bird absconded with it and wore it the rest of the day…
And actually, I’m okay with that. It looks nice on her. Very pretty with her pale skin and gold hair. So, okay then. It’s hers.
Pattern was The Proverbial Cap by Meg Swansen, and it’s a great one if you want to get in a workout in twisted stitches. You got all of them, right here. Actual cables, right and left travelers and twists over knits and purls. And if you have the issue of Interweave Knits (Fall 2010) that the pattern appeared in, you’ve got a nice tutorial offering several ways to execute all of those stitches.
Here’s my favorite part:
Right there, where the cabled motif disappears in the decreases for the top, and alongside it where the next motif is mirrored as the decreases continue to, well, decrease.
Happy Knitting, Friends!
